Eagles RB Jay Ajayi (back, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 3. With Ajayi out, Corey Clement has risen in our rankings. He’ll probably share touches with Wendell Smallwood, but in addition to 6 carries for 30 yards and a rushing touchdown last week, Clement added 5 catches for 55 yards as a receiver. The Colts just gave up 16 catches for 122 yards to Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson. Smallwood is a deep league desperation play.

Scouting Report

Week 3 vs. Green Bay Packers

Through two weeks, Chris Thompson appears to be a productive fantasy asset no matter the game script. His 11 and 17 touches the first two weeks translated to 47.1 total PPR points. It was a different story for Adrian Peterson. His 28 touches in Week 1 while leading all game against Arizona were far more than the 14 touches he saw last week when trailing most of the game against Indianapolis. His snap count also went from 53 percent to 34 percent. The Packers are ninth in PPR points allowed to RBs this season. With this offense needing to keep up with Aaron Rodgers, expect more Thompson and continued RB2 production with weekly RB1 upside.
